Citclops @ geo x, geneva 2014 01 15

  1. 1. Citclops - Citizens' observatory for coast and ocean optical monitoring Luigi Ceccaroni, BDigital GEO-X, Geneva, 2014.01.15
  2. 2. Project partners Barcelona Digital (ES) CSIC (ES) Mariene Informatie Service MARIS (NL) Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research – NIOZ (NL) Coastwatch Europe (IE) Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg (DE) Kinetical Business (ES) Noveltis (FR) VUA (NL) Deltares (NL) TriOS Mess- und Datentechnik (DE)
  3. 3. Data to retrieve and use Seawater color, transparency and fluorescence
  4. 4. Applications to be developed An application to contribute to ocean-colour research An application focused on individual citizens for the improvement of scuba-diving activities An application focused on users of the beach and consisting in ranking the best beaches An application focused on policy makers consisting in the development of early-warning systems for bio-chemical hazards An application to retrieve/consult sensor measurements from low-cost moorings An application focused on water transparency
  5. 5. Data flow Policy makers GEOSS Data management and interoperability Crowdsourcing processed database GIS data integration Data interpretation Knowledge based integration Public Crowdsourcing raw data QA/AC (partially embedded) Water optical properties Crowdsourcing raw database transfer
  6. 6. Architecture
  7. 7. Plans to make data openly available through GEOSS In the marine domain, activities for data standardisation and interoperability follow EU INSPIRE recommendations [http://inspire.ec.europa.eu/] – via EU projects/initiatives: • SIMORC – System of industry metocean data for the offshore and research communities [http://www.simorc.org/] • SeaDataNet (at present SeaDataNet II, 2011-2015) [http://www.seadatanet.org/] • EMODnet - European marine observation and data network [http://www.emodnet-hydrography.eu/], coordinated in the framework of INSPIRE, Copernicus (previously known as GMES) and GEOSS. The SeaDataNet infrastructure and standards have been adopted as core elements of EMODnet data management.
  8. 8. Plans to make data openly available through GEOSS SeaDataNet maintains common vocabularies, governed by an international board, for describing data parameters, devices, countries and sea areas. Common data index (CDI), based on ISO 19115: central piece of the discovery service in SeaDataNet, enabling users to know availability and geographical extent of marine data. It also provides the link from the discovery services towards the delivery services, because it is directly related to the data sets, to which the users can request access. Citclops adopted and adapted SeaDataNet metadata, standards and principles, and its portal will be made interoperable with EMODnet, and thus with GEOSS.
  9. 9. Plans to make data openly available through GEOSS Objective: managing and giving harmonised access to ocean and marine observation data from organisations such as governmental departments and research institutes in all countries around the European seas. EMODnet provides data to WISE-Marine [http://water.europa.eu/], which is intended to fulfil the reporting obligations of the MSFD and to inform the European public on indicators for good environmental status of sea basins, and GEOSS. The data coverage includes monitoring and research data for physical oceanography, marine geology, marine chemistry, bathymetry, biology, both in archives and in near real-time.

  10. 10. Technology that can be used by other citizen-observatory projects • Citclops focuses on using mobile platforms • to collect data • to give citizens access to these data, and to analyses and interpretations • All projects which use mobile devices to collect data and as an extra platform to serve out specific data sets can benefit from Citclops’s technology.
